From School Library Journal:

YA Elvis Presley fans are going to love this book. They will find coverage of everything from Elvis' life to the proliferation of memora bilia that never seems to end. A look at the transition in his song lyrics during his career and a filmography are included. The Sterns make the point that these quickly-made films (sometimes three per year) prevented Elvis from focusing completely on his music. Other material found in the book includes annotated listings of museums, catalogs, and books (including cookbooks) centering around Elvis, as well as his favorite stores, car dealers, and restaurants. Not to be missed is the list of groceries that had to be in his pantry at all times and the recipe for his favorite snack. This book is not a deep, psychological study of a legendary figure but is instead a view of a perform er's life and impact on the culture of his time. It is a handsome volume with ex tensive use of color photography on glossy paper. Barbara Weathers, Du chesne Academy, Houston

From Library Journal:

Welcome to that thriving universe left behind by the original King of Rock 'n' Roll. Written in cooperation with the Presley estate and published on the tenth anniversary of his death, this is a lovingly lavish album complete with some 250 color and black-and-white photos that document his past and continuing impact. Wryly amazed at it all, the authors entertainingly examine the "Elvoid" artifacts including the movies, the music and mementoes. They also provide a guided tour of Elvis World's geographical locale, centered at Graceland in Memphis but encompassing other places where he lived, worked, worshipped, or shopped. It is to these places that his fansmostly middle-aged, Middle America womenstill flock. Avoiding condescension and transcending tackiness, this is a tender, touching, and clever treatment of the King and his subjects. Paul G. Feehan, Univ. of Miami Lib., Coral Gables
